Brookdale’s after school program is designed for children ages 5-16 providing a safe place to play pool, air hockey, sports, cook, dance and receive homework help.
Our Healthy Eats Cooking Class is held once a week. All food is donated from Farmer Joe’s, La Farine Bakery, Happy Boy Farms, and others. Children learn the basics of cooking as well as tasting new food. At the end of each class, children take home a bag of groceries.
